I observed a female Pileated Woodpecker flying across the lake at Seneca 
College's King Campus around 2:30 pm today.  Pursued by a red wing 
blackbird, the bird flew from the south side of the lake west of the boat 
house to the north side, west of Eaton Hall and just east of the north side 
osprey platform. I checked the area where it disappeared into the trees but 
did not see it later.

Seneca College's King campus is reached off King side road, east of Highway 
400, and then north on Dufferin about 2 km. Eaton Hall is on the north side 
of the contained lake. The area where the Pileated disappeared into the 
trees is reached by hiking past Eaton Hall toward the ski center and then 
going southward on the white ski trail. There is a charge for admission to 
the campus.
